Teenage Superstar Macie Brings Easter Joy To Island Care Home Residents

A teenager with a happy habit of helping others delivered a dose of Easter joy to care homes across the Isle of Wight last weekend.

Macie Edkins-Wherry delivered 196 Easter eggs and treat bag to various care homes around the Island, which every resident receiving a gift.

The 18 year-old, who has become synonymous with acts of kindness over the past few years, used her own money to fund the deliveries.

She recently performed a similar act over the Christmas period.

Macie said:

"I still want to fit time in to do charity work and deliver to the elderly as I like to make people happy.

"It lights up my day going to visit and have a chat with them, it makes it all worth it to see their faces.

"I will do this for as long as possible and no matter how busy I get will find time to fit it in."

Macie — who is currently rehearsing for a role in Legally Blonde at Shanklin Theatre later this month — hopes to go off to a performing arts college next year, and is training with theatre school Curtain Call Creative.
